St Cuthbert’s Catholic High School is seeking to appoint an outstanding English teacher. Our extremely successful English department aims to equip our pupils and students for the future and inspire a love of literature. We deliver a broad and ambitious curriculum, ranging from studying the language of technology to the more traditional literary canon, all of which is underpinned by first-class teaching. The successful candidate will have the opportunity to develop within an established and supportive team of colleagues.

The ideal candidate will be passionate about the English curriculum and how this can be taught in an inspiring way to maximise outcomes, whilst both instilling and developing a love for the subject. We are looking for someone who can enable the boys to see the relevance of literature to their lives and modern concerns, someone who will inspire our pupils and spark their passion for the subject. Above all, we are looking for someone who will help our boys become better men and show them the difference that English can make in the world. The ability to extend pupils’ engagement beyond the school day, through co-curricular activities would be an advantage.

This is an opportunity to join a well-established and aspirational department in an impressive, all-boys Catholic School that has enjoyed a reputation as a centre of educational excellence for over one hundred years. We welcome applications from newly qualified teachers or early career entrants as well as, experienced English teachers looking for a new challenge.
